    My work is stressful as fuck with this impending litigation that will likely get continued. Fucker has money for life and seems like he wants to try to take our small business down. I think it’s a ego thing more than a money thing.

    I pronounce the w in hawk and it's one syllable. No interviews please, respect my decision.

    I say win and when the same. If I was giving a formal speech or something I'd probably church up when a little more so you get the h in there, but in normal every day conversation it comes out the same.

    Now those two are the same in my book. Some Appalachian types let that H get out in front. "Hhhhhhwen?" "Boy I'ma hhhhhhhhwoop your ass!"

    Yeah I never really even thought about it till some douche in college called me out on it. Now I'm a little self conscious about it but I don't want to go through life sounding like Stewie Griffin pronouncing Cool Whip you know what I mean?

    Nope. It's a very slight difference, but there is indeed a difference.

    Correct. I picked one particular hill to die on, hawk/hock. I'm convinced I'm right on that matter while recognizing that many of my pronunciations are "incorrect"

    Wouldn't I pronounce hock the same hillbilly way in this case? I don't because I can recognize the differences in words.

    False. You just need to properly understand the linguistic difference.

    Would you say those two the same? Of course not. There’s your hawk/hock difference.

    One of my favorite things about TMB is learning about the little idiosyncrasies of the small portions of the US that do things differently than the majority. Each little alcove has their own things (mine included) and it's fascinating to learn about/poke fun at/get poked fun of for it.

    It depends

    Something like the word awesome sounds more like ah-sum. Emphasizing the w sounds like I'm trying to sound like I'm from New York or new jersey
